I finally have a day off of work when the kids are in school, so hopefully I can get some more decorating done today. Busy weekend again, DD has a soccer tournament both days so that will take up most of the time since it's a hour away.

Well better get the kids moving so I can get them off to school and then I can come home and jump into decorating !!!!!!!!

Have a blessed day everyone
Have fun mommyby3!!!

The other teams coach is one of my best friends. We were 3-3 against each other. He called me last night and told me he hopes they beat us so bad that we dont field a team next year. Told him I hope he breaks his leg walking out to the game from the locker room...some friendship, huh? It was all in good nature...I dont want him to break his leg! Well, maybe.
Good luck ballcoach!!!

I don't know what I'm doing this afternoon, but you can bet I'll be with my family!

I hope y'all have a great day!
Have fun with the family this afternoon!!!

Good morning all. Tomorrow I will be in the car for six hours by myself, driving through northwest Oklahoma and it will be Christmas music all the way!

You know you are in no man's land when you pass a sign that says "caution; tumbleweeds on roadway." That sign does exist and I will see it tomorrow. But I'll have Dean, Bing, Frank, and everyone to keep me company. Northwest Oklahoma has some very cool things for a guy like me who loves the west with random mesas, hills, and small canyons scattered about. Just seeing that area makes me feel like I need to be on a horse with a rifle and shotgun strapped beside a bedroll and a food pouch, and a pistol strapped to my side.

Hope everyone has a great Thursday!

I guess it's easy to become addicted to 'Starbucks' at this time of the year when they have so many delicious drinks. ^^ I tried salted caramel mocha because I hadn't tried it before. Yummy! I'm getting ready for my lectures, and I hope to submit my essay today which I finished writing on Monday. The deadline is next Monday but I love submitting my works earlier.

I wish you all a good day!

Have fun at your classes today!!!

Afternoon All,

Beautiful day here today. My eldest is home today , I think he 's caught a bug. I have been decluttering today and organising shelves and cupboards. I have got boxes of stuff including the Halloween decorations ready to be put into the loft and a few things to go to goodwill. My end of year '' to do'' list is slowly moving along. I'm hoping to get a lot more done on Saturday and hopefully finish up by end of next week. Then it will be time for the fun things like christmas cards, shopping and bringing down the decorations etc.

I am having a little break with a cup of Christmas tea, a Christmas cookie ,MMC and I've tuned into Merry In-laws on tv. I am making a point of taking a Christmas time out every day till Christmas day even if its just 20 minutes or so. It's so easy to get caught up with everything else and before you know it the season is over and your left wishing you savoured it more.

I saw the Christmas ad for another big department store last night!

I hope you all are having a really good day. I am super excited about tomorrow. First day of the special posts, best of luck Made!!!

P.S. If you get a chance please take a photo of that sign! That made me laugh. Hilarious!
